About Joan

About the Inn

The Millpond Inn is a very special place offering its guests much more than just a place to stay. For those that like to socialize, the friendships made here can be memorable. We are always learning new things from the guests that come here with a variety of backgrounds and locations from around the US and the World.

We have plenty of off street parking and a nice cottage garden backyard where you can sit and enjoy the fountain, read or socialize. The livingroom is part of the commons area where you can watch TV or read from the large selection of books and magazines or just socialize with friends or guests. Our brag tables is full of books left by their authors who have stayed here.

  Joan puts an incredible effort and talent into making breakfast. Most of the dishes are homemade including a 7 grain bread, yogurt (best in the world), different baked goods every morning and even her own chi tea blend. Joan cooks most of the breakfasts to the individual. Where have you stayed that the breakfast is short order? Incredible omlettes, pancakes pecan, blueberry or cheese. Organic oatmeal with cranberries and chia. Fresh fruit, juices, coffee and large selection of teas are also available.
